    Good Series, Great Universe; Skip Episode 5 to Add 1 Star
    The greatest strength of "Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet" is the really interesting world it creates. Set in a distant future where humanity is fighting an alien menace in deep space, most of the action takes place on the earth humanity abandoned, where a lost soldier has to discover the roots of the conflict he was fighting in. The war in space and the sea-based society on earth are both ...

    2nd Best Anime In My Queue ^_^
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet was absolutely amazing. It had more feels than half of the shows I've seen (but not more than Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day). I can proudly say that this anime has earned it's spot as second best under Attack on Titan. The characters, story, how you bond with the character over time is what makes it the best. I would gladly consider a second season and ...

    It's the little things that count.
    Gargantia was a show that did not truly start to impress me until around episode 7. Prior, conflict seemed negligible and predictability was starting to set in. But halfway through, the show makes a great shift in tone to starkly contrast its bright, colorful, and usually jovial setting and tone. This amplifies the gravity of the latter half of the show three-fold. While I initially dismissed the ...

    The best show of the season
    The animation is amazing and the characters are all lovable. It has a strong story and a large amount of smooth character growth. The storyline is not entirely unique (reminds me a lot of xamd) but is still very refreshing and compelling. Easily the best show of its season and will keep you wanting more even after its over.

    A Surprisingly Deep Story
    From the begining, Gargantia has had something that drew me to it. Strong characters, certainly. A somewhat different take on the Mecha genre, for sure. But something else stood out to keep me coming back episode after episode. While there are certainly a one off episode or two, there is a strong overarching story that I desired to find out more about. Episode 9 starts to pay dividends on that ...

    My Top Pick for the Spring 2013 Season
    I'm a sci-fi fan who has been losing interest in mech shows because they tend to follow the same storyline with only slight variations. This show has renewed my interest in the genre. While it reminds me a bit of the American movie "Waterworld", this is no flop. There are enough reviews here describing the story so I'm not going to add anything more other than to say it is a must watch for ...

    A lot of credit goes into this Anime.
    The plot is set in the future. There are a race of aliens, called Hideauze, threatening the Humankind that are living in space. During a battle, Ledo, gets caught with his combat suit (filled with onboard AI named "Chamber"), in a spacial distortion and awakes on a Planet filled with Seas.
    Now, I have problems labeling this series as just Mecha. Honestly, that is dumbing it down too much. ...

    Freaking sweet watch it
    Its the season of mech anime, although most of them are Gundam knock offs this series is different. The main character isn't a whiny little Shinji and the animation is very good. In case you didn't know the same guy that did fate zero and madoka magica is directing this series. Definitely worth a watch.

    Now THIS is interesting!
    Gen Urobuchi (Fate/Zero, Madoka Magica, Psycho-Pass) returns to deliver one of the most exciting new series of the year! The premise of the story is far more original compared to most mecha series that I've seen, combined with it's great art design and animation thanks to Production I.G with a stellar OST. This also marks the breakout role for rookie seiyuu Kaito Ishikawa as the main character ...

    This is what I wanted
    I saw a preview to this before Crunchyroll announced that it was in the spring streams, and I wanted to see it then. This feels like this seasons hit anime. It has a smart plot, wonderful visuals and a main protagonist I can enjoy watching. It also has some surprises that make it unique in my opinion.
